Clariant and Neste cooperate to develop sustainable solutions
Thanks to the partnership with Neste, Clariant is now able to provide sustainable polyolefin solutions derived from renewable hydrocarbons. Gloria Glang, Vice President, Head of Global Advanced Surface Solutions at Clariant: “The partnership between Clariant and Neste brings us closer to our goal of becoming a provider of truly sustainable solutions in the additives market”.
Renewable hydrocarbons as a full substitute
The raw materials, C2-/C3-monomers, are obtained from renewable hydrocarbons, which produce nests from 100% renewable raw materials and which originate from raw material wastes and residues, such as used cooking oil and renewable vegetable oils. These C2 and C3 monomers are a full substitute for those currently used by Clariant in the production of polyolefin solutions for a wide range of applications.
